Rum company on Daufuskie Island set to open early next year

It's only natural that his post-retirement job will be to lead a new rum company on Daufuskie Island. A 35-year resident of Kentucky and a soon-to-be-retired medical executive, Chase first came to Daufuskie in July 2012 looking for a retirement home. At 53, Chase said he wasn't ready to stop working, so he came up with the idea of opening a micro-distillery on Daufuskie.
